This miniature park that hosts most attractions of Kazakhstan is certainly interesting as it provides a quick overview over all regions of this large country that you otherwise might miss (e.g. For me particularly the mausoleums in Mangistau were interesting to see as a model)....More

I wish I had gone to this one on my first day in Astana. It's like a miniture world of Kazachstan. It's mostly outside but the depiction of Astana is inside. I wish I had seen this the first day because it has a nice...More

It was nice to see the size of the country and the variety. But difficult to follow since numbers were not easily followed and did not come in numerical order
